A year ago, Røde introduced its Wireless GO microphones which offered fantastic wireless audio performance at a great price. The company has just released an updated version which brings a number of improvements to an already impressive system.
The Wireless GO II shares the same form factor as its predecessor but now offers a dual-channel microphone system consisting of two transmitters and a single receiver. It also has the ability to record internally — more than 24 hours of compressed audio or 7 hours of uncompressed audio — bringing a level of redundancy and versatility over the previous version. If you manage to fill up your device, it will overwrite the oldest saved recording.
The line-of-sight range has been boosted from 230 feet (70 meters) to 655 feet (200 meters), and it features USB-C and iOS digital output in addition to the 3.5mm TRS. Unfortunately, if you’re looking to expand your existing audio, the Wireless GO II is not compatible with its predecessor.
You might recall that Fstoppers’ Lee Morris was highly impressed with the first version of these microphones when they were released last year. Caleb Pike demonstrated their versatility by putting together a list of 10 hacks which is well worth checking out.
The Røde Wireless GO II is available to purchase now for $299.
